I wonder what's the Venn Diagram overlap of guys who refuse to wear masks on principle and guys who, in their lives, have at some point entertained fantasies of giving their lives to fight a "Red Dawn"-style foreign invasion.

Some people actually do get “cancelled,” and — as often seems the case — it’s because a big company has zero appetite for even the whiff of this kind of controversy and can easily dispose of the offending person. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/08/business/boeing-resignation-niel-golightly.html?referringSource=a...

When you sign a letter arguing for free expression, and find yourself in the company of people who are not your usual intellectual fellow travelers — that seems like a feature, not a bug.

The more hopeful #2 takeaway is that it doesn't have to be this way. We discovered a whole other category of high quality hospitals that don't screw the poor and people of color. We call them the real "Best Hospitals for America."

We are thrilled to introduce the inaugural issue of “The Best Hospitals for America.” The first ranking of its kind, we teamed up with the  @Lown Institute to evaluate the institutions that save lives, save money, and serve social justice. https://washingtonmonthly.com/magazine/july-august-2020/introducing-the-best-hospitals-for-america/

Donald Trump paid someone to take the SAT on his behalf, his niece Mary Trump writes. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/07/us/politics/mary-trump-book.html?referringSource=articleShare

“We are starting to encounter a fair amount of pushback from younger folks when you call them up and say, ‘We want to know everyone who was at your party.’ There’s very much a sense of, ‘That’s none of your business.’” https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/06/us/coronavirus-florida-miami.html?referringSource=articleShare

Thrilled that the first glimpse of my new book appears in the pages of my alma mater,  @The New York Times. Appreciate the embrace of so many readers.

New  @NYT Magazine: we’re honored to pub this amazing essay by the incomparable  @Isabel Wilkerson, adapted from her new book “Caste” (8/4), which so many readers have been waiting for. A profound meditation on the “unseen skeleton” that maintains racial hierarchy. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/01/magazine/isabel-wilkerson-caste.html

Can't help but wonder if the conversation about reopening schools and child care would be different and more urgent if there were more mothers in positions of power at companies and in government ...

Thought we had figured out which Twitter was the worst Twitter but then the VC guys really stepped up their game.

BREAKING: Fort Lauderdale police officers thought their body cameras were off when they laughed and joked about shooting protesters with rubber bullets. “Did you see me f**k up those motherf****rs?” one said to laughter. https://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/community/broward/article243932047.html w/  @Sarah Blaskey 🏝

Update: the lab I wrote about here is now the subject of a Congressional inquiry into potential coronavirus price gouging. They're asked to submit their prices/billing practices to Congress by July 10. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/29/upshot/coronavirus-tests-unpredictable-prices.html

.@balajis has been ranting about me by name for months now. He has tweeted speculation on my salary, bashed my education, my writing, my career, and worse.

I've tried to reach out to him privately. Today, he declined my call once again. Honestly asking, how should I handle this?
